Looking at the links it looks exactly the same as the hobbyking model i built which was an easy pleasant build but lacked scale detail which would add weight and additional cost , my is electric . Happy building

I've always ended the outer flush to the fuselage side for neatness if nothing else. I then cut the inner not much longer and thread the connecting wire into it which then runs up to the clevis on the control horn. This is naturally rigid and as the snake is fairly straight inside that section of the fuselage the wire can travel back into the outer if needed.

+1 for this method

Best by far without resorting to the alchemy suggested above is Pollyfilla Advanced. It comes pre-mixed, tube or tub, it fills and smooths very well, has far less tendency to lift off than specialist lightweight fillers, dries quickly and sands easily (often not needed because it smooths so well) and it's cheap.


And after a light sanding a coat of non shrinking dope

Great work Martian. Re the false rivets, have you tried using an auto centre punch instead of a hammer? It would give you consistency of force which can be a tad difficult with a hammer, especially after you’ve been at it for a while. You can also get adjustable auto centre punches. Just a thought.........

Thank you Ken I'll look into that

Thank you Martyn and Tony. Martyn the cowl has had one coat of rustoleum chrome spray it will get at least two more. I have experimented with a number of different chrome and Ali paints and found this the best applied in light coats it looks very much like polished aluminium although not chrome
